My watch seems to be keeping time fine. I can not find the directions to it and the second hand does not move. Is this a setting or a mechanical problem? Thanks for any help. The battery was just replaced as well. Thanks again.
Keep in mind the second hand is NOT the big red hand. It's the little tiny hand in the circle on the far left of the watch face. The right hand is the home city hand and is NOT intended to move unless you are selecting a city by holding down one of the city selection buttons.

It could be a couple of things, the second hand is not seated properly and is rubbing. May need a cleaning, or fresh battery. Unless you have taken a watch apart I would bring it to a watch repair or send it directly to Invicta USA they will give you an estimate. Should not be expensive
Check if the battery is still in good condition. If this doesn't solve the problem, swipe a magnet over the back of the watch in different directions until the minute hand moves. Take care not to scratch the watch with the magnet. It may be necessary to oscillate the magnet several times at the correct position and direction until the minute hand moves freely.
If your watch is solar powered the second hand performs this characteristic when it's in need of a charge. Try placing your time piece under a bright light for short time or in direct sunlight and see if this helps you with your problem.
The watch has a problem in the timing module and the second hand won't move (a cog wheel issue) this is clearly a manufacture defect that can not be remedied and should be returned since it is under warranty.
The roles haven't been reversed. The seconds hand for normal timekeeping is the small one and the chronograph timer seconds hand is the large one. The reason for that is that it is much easier to determine the precise second with the larger hand. It working exactly as it should. If you like having the large second hand moving all the time you will not hurt the watch by leaving it running. All chronographs work this way. Nice watch - wear it well!
Your TAG is fitted with EOL (end of life) feature. This is the cause of
that 4 seconds interval movement of seconds hand and thus indicating
the time for battery replacement. The timekeeping is not affected by
this- it is just warning to replace battery a.s.a.p. Find your nearest watchmaker and ask for battery replacement.
